The main product of a blast furnace is molten crude iron. It is transported in torpedo ladle cars for additional processing in a steel plant. The prototype of our model is an 18-axle special car with an authorized total weight of 360 metric tons. The interior of the container is bricked up to be fireproof in order that the 1,350° Celsius / 2,462° Fahrenheit hot load does not cool down on the one hand and to prevent the container from melting. Three to four of these cars often run in a train. Two-axle empty freight cars are coupled between them to keep from exceeding the permissible load on railroad bridges.
